Would you listen to The Amber Citadel again? Why?
It is what you would expect from a fantasy book in terms of story line. Some of the creatures/beings are interesting but a bit predictable. The world development isn't anything new or particularly creative but it isn't bad. It is still enjoyable as the character development is strong throughout the story. There are some very explicit sex scenes which I don't care for as they add absolutely nothing to the story but they are brief and so not too annoying. There is some romance that isn't all that convincing as well. One of the reasons I prefer male fantasy writers overall, they don't usually use fantasy as a cover for romance or overindulge in sex scenes if they don't add to the story line in some way.
The narration is good. The voice is pleasing although not the most dynamic.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Take out the sex scenes. More development of some of the relationships before the characters hop in bed. It just didn't ring true.
Which character – as performed by Helen Lloyd – was your favorite?

... Why I lost interest in this. The idea behind it has potential but the writing is a bit clunky and the characters isn't that interesting.
Perhaps the story will pick up as the series move on and the writer get some more experience.
But this is a bit to disjointed and use the deux machina a bit to much for my taste.
So it will move on without me.
